    4.11.5 skylake black screen, FC25, FC26 beta

    Getting black screen on skylake with 4.11.5 both FC26 beta and FC25.
    4.11.6 from koji also gives black screen.


    4.11.4-300.fc26 last working kernel
    4.11.3-302.fc26 works
    The beta kernel 4.11.0-2.fc26.x86_64 works.

    This problem seems different from the previous microcode_ctl issue in that it actually
    gets to the kernel messages and blacks out after doing what seems like a video mode switch.
    This is on UEFI, BTW.



    It looks similar to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1353103 but
    dis_ucode_ldr on the kernel commandline didn't fix it so probably not due to microcode_ctl
    again.

    Same problem on Asus UX305

    See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1463085 and report your problem.

    Re: 4.11.5 skylake black screen, FC25, FC26 beta

    I just installed new kernel 4.11.7 but problem is still present with many drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_pm.c traces in journalctl.

    At this time 4.11.4 is still the last working kernel on Asus UX305.

    See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1463085 and report your problem.

    Question Re: 4.11.5 skylake black screen, FC25, FC26 beta

    Please, try to switch off the HT (HT=OFF, HT -> hyperthreading) in UEFI BIOS, and then re-test with the newest kernel!

    https://www.golem.de/news/skylake-un...-128582-2.html

    Although you have already (by article) newest microcode which fixes this issue:

    Code:
    juin 20 12:47:00 lx-laptop kernel: microcode: sig=0x406e3, pf=0x80, revision=0xba
    juin 20 12:47:00 lx-laptop kernel: microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.2.

    Last edited by nobody; 29th June 2017 at 10:31 AM. Reason: Changed HYP to HT, which is the correct abbr.

    Re: 4.11.5 skylake black screen, FC25, FC26 beta

    Thanks for your answer.

    I confirm the microcode level of my Asus UX305:

    Code:
    # dmesg | grep "EFI v"
    [    0.000000] efi: EFI v2.40 by American Megatrends
    # journalctl -b | grep microcode
    juin 29 13:54:44 lx-laptop kernel: microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0xba, date = 2017-04-09
    juin 29 13:54:44 lx-laptop kernel: microcode: sig=0x406e3, pf=0x80, revision=0xba
    juin 29 13:54:44 lx-laptop kernel: microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.2.
    Looking in UEFI BIOS, I do not found where to set HT to OFF

    you probably cannot. this setting is usually specific to desktop firmware only

    OK. Noted... From what I see here: http://ark.intel.com/products/88194/...up-to-3_10-GHz it should be manageable?!

    Next task. Could you, please, attach external monitor, and see/experience the following:
    [1] Could you bring external monitor (I assume HDMI I/F by default, maybe VGA) to CMOS BIOS screens?
    [2] If [1] YES, could you bring NON working kernels (last three - 4.11.5, 4.11.6 or 4.11.7) to work on the external monitor?

    Thank you,

    Re: 4.11.5 skylake black screen, FC25, FC26 beta

    I tried with no success new kernel-4.11.8-200.fc25

    As it was suggested to me above I also tried to boot with an external display connected on HDMI....

    In this case I get following message on HDMI display:

    Code:
    [    1.308240] [drm:drm_calc_timestamping_constants [drm]] *ERROR* crtc 31: Can't calculate constants, dotclock = 0!
    You are in emergency mode...
    At this time 4.11.4 is still, at least for me, the last working kernel on Asus UX305.

    It is (with 99% certainty) clear to me that the following is the REAL problem:

    These are the changes that came in between 4.11.4 and 4.11.5 for i915
    They tampered with VBT data (VBT table), and as final result, somehow DRM is NOT reaching external HDMI monitor's EDID!

    It is how kernel.org maintainers will keep up with the HW and FW SKL families problems (SKL S/H/U/Y, if I correctly remember).

    They should work together with INTEL OTC (Open Source Technology Center) to fix inside (introduce workarounds for) generic kernels for HW and FW SKL bugs.

    I'll keep monitoring (outside) kernel.org Bugzilla 196233.

    Question Re: 4.11.5 skylake black screen, FC25, FC26 beta

    From your latest comment from Bugzilla https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1463085 :

    I went there to read these documents (erratum documents are STRICTLY INTEL confidential, so I can assume if INTEL published such type of documents, how bad it is out there with SKL notebooks???), and seems that you have problem with erratum SKL102 (please, find it from the first document).

    Then, I went to find somehow ASUS UX305 UEFI settings, and, yes, I found video, describing ASUS UX305 UEFI setup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifjzRojYCno .

    You are correct: no sign of HT settings!

    Out of desperation, I suggest to you the following: freeze video at 1:17, and set encryption (AES-NI setting) to [DISABLED], and see what'll happen (leave Virtualization Technology [ENABLED] and VT-d [ENABLED]).

    So, the first use case for you to try is the following:
    Virtualization Technology____[ENABLED]
    INTEL AES-NI_____________[DISABLED]
    VT-d____________________[ENABLED]

    If does not work, the second use case to try:
    Virtualization Technology____[ENABLED]
    INTEL AES-NI_____________[DISABLED]
    VT-d____________________[DISABLED]

    If does not work, the third use case to try:
    Virtualization Technology____[DISABLED]
    INTEL AES-NI_____________[DISABLED]
    VT-d____________________[DISABLED]

    Please, report your results here!

    Re: 4.11.5 skylake black screen, FC25, FC26 beta

    The bleeding edge is the expression used for early users of a new technology. Its only with multiple users who use hardware in unique ways, that bugs are discovered. Intel did not intend to send buggy cpus to the world, as their cost to repair is way way higher than the supposed profit and to their loss of credability.

    Intel will make it right, but it is not going to happen overnight. They may be waiting for more unique bug reports before creating that loadable patch to the processor. All modern processors can accept patches at boot time. Typically, the patches are stored in the bios, but the cpu may also be updated by a runtime (boottime) patch.

    By the way, it is also the means by which a new instruction may be added to the cpu to make certain instructions less secure. Think Spyware

    Hello didier,

    I cross-compared some of my records with ones you'have posted. This bug (erratum SKL102) supposed to be fixed with MCU 0x76 and later, but, apparently, this HW bug was never fixed, according to the documents you have posted.
